The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) today (January 25) raided the house of former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda in connection with an alleged land scam in Gurugram, formerly called Gurgaon, in Haryana when he was in power. The 71-year-old Congress politician, who was the chief minister of Haryana from 2005 to 2014, was present in the house in Rohtak when it was raided by the CBI.
The raid come just weeks after Hooda was granted bail by a CBI court in Panchkula in a case pertaining to alleged illegal re-allotment of land to Associated Journals Ltd (AJL), the publisher of National Herald, in 2005. Hooda faces allegations of using his influence during his tenure to allot land to AJL. AJL is reportedly controlled by senior Congress leaders, including members of the Gandhi family.
